ITS A COUNTRY CHRISTMAS AT SWEET TEA N' SALTY AIR! COME ON IN.............
Welcome everyone! It's finally Christmas here at Sweet Tea N' Salty Air, a time for rejoice, and happiness to share with family and friends! Traditions are also kept such as here every Christmas morning I make homemade cinnamon buns a sweet doe recipe from my late gram. Well what are you waiting for come on in!
Made this from tops from plastic containers .....
I so snuck on over to my neighbors and took this picture of his Poinsettia, he so has a green thumb and a kind heart, he shares some cuts and plants with us, bless his heart!
I crafted this tree from a scrap of wood and the star is made from some shims
This is the secrete lil cabinet filled with a collection of Santas
My favorite is the Fenton Santa on the right
This year we went with a white tree and the lodge theme, seems fitting seeing that we are a stones throw from the everglades, and Bears roam our yard.
I think my favorite part of the tree is hanging on all the childrens picture ornaments, my Son Tim a very long time ago
These Santa lights play music and the children love pushing the button to make them work
These tree bags will be filled up with sand and then a candle and they will eliminate the walkways.
This sweet little cabinet was given to us by my mom, every day a door is open and an ornament is taken out along with a prize of candy
I recently found a small cedar box that was filled with my great grama sue who would be well into her hundreds now! The box had a scent of her perfume that she wore, she had some button collection, all are vintage and very pretty. I set them in a galvanized tray around the Christmas lantern. Grama Sue is such a sweet memory, just as my Dad and mom and all my grandmothers who have now past
This lovely table runner is from Pottery Barn all embroidered
Love the Snowmen...given to me by my daughter in law
This little ice fisherman is so special to me when my middle son Nicholas was about 8 or so he went to the store and bought me this so I love to display it every Christmas!
It has been so nice having you by! I wish everyone a special joyous safe Holiday!!
Welcome brrrrrrr! its cold here in S. W. Florida and everywhere for that matter hope you are as warm as can be. This winter I wanted to go with a winters farm theme. I crafted a sign my imaginary WinterCrest Farm and all the farm items to go with it . I painted things I had been saving when I conjured up this idea months ago.
So my kids thought I was crazy saving the Mrs. Butterworths plastic bottles but I gave them a coat of black chalk paint and added the price seemed fitting because the farm sign says pure maple syrup.
White lights and a few baron branches to give the winter glow
This little ceramic piggy bank also got a lick of paint
I added my vintage wooden breadbox filled with raffia and some blue and white dishware
A simple rag garland
So this mantle display did not cost me any money just stuff I was saving and some paint and an old piece of wood !
Well I have been absent from the blogger world for some time , reason being I'm just too darn busy reading all the other wonderful blogs and their inspiration keeps me crafting and building and getting into all kinds of creative trouble....But I have created a very vintage looking backsplash for nearly nothing. I scanned through my mind repeatedly for a unique backsplash that would not break the bank yet it had to be smashing looking. Low and behold after a thorough first take my idea was "born".
All you need for this project is Aluminum foil, a stencil of your choice, white glue, paint for highlighting, water based sealant if you choose to.A Flat surface for working, a soft cloth and plenty of patience.
hhSo, what do you think? you like the look? Now lets get started. The process is as follows: Place your stencil on a flat surface place your piece of tin foil on top of the stencil, take your very soft cloth and gently rub the foil and you will get the imprint of the sten…
Hi there welcome! Hope everyone is enjoying the day. Lets talk Shiplap for a bit, I was thinking that Joanna Gaines of Fixer Upper was maybe just a tiny bit over doing it with her shiplap but let me tell you she has introduced a wonderful way to explode your home with vintage style and beauty her excitement is fully understood now.....thank you Joanna for introducing me anyway to such a smashing wall finish.
So this is something I wanted to try for a bit , I have a huge wall in the kitchen that I cant really remedy meaning everything I do there I really am not happy with until now that is........people all you need is a paintbrush measuring tool lots of masking tape, dark paint and light paint and you can achieve the "shiplap look". Lets take a look
ok so this is just a flat black painted wall and you do need a dark base color or if you prefer use a light base color and dark on top but the most important trick to all this is CONTRAST For this Faux shiplap application …
